In 6 weeks we got our owners forum organized, we were able to set up a management team to run the day-to-day operations and we have 2 store managers, one for each store. We grasped and started implementing concepts that we never heard of before, for example chain of command, metrics for areas of a business and for positions, position descriptions, and so on….”Dora Tseytkin, Dovid Segal Refuah Pharmacy.
